Sometimes, I will notice that a patient has one or two teeth, toward the front, that are smaller than the other teeth.

They will mention that they don’t like the spacing and shape of these teeth, because the kind of look like baby teeth.

Underdeveloped teeth are a very common trait in adult patients.

Many people will see their adult teeth come in and one or two of them will be almost the same size as a baby tooth and look a little pointed.
These teeth are called microdontia or small tooth.

The one that is the most common is the lateral incisor which is the tooth directly next to the 2 front teeth.

These smaller “peg” laterals really affect the teeth proportions and ultimately the beauty of your smile.

Now, we have several solutions to help restore those smaller sized teeth to look like their proper size and shape.

The different materials that can be used, range from bonding to porcelain. These methods are very conservative and do not require any shaving down of the existing tooth structure.

If you have an underdeveloped tooth and would like to see your options to improve your smile, please visit us at or call 773-292-1911.

Emilio “Tooth Be Told” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
